Benz in Sheep's Clothing


In photography exploration plays a huge role in making the job exciting. Through my eyes photographers are like packs of wolves on the hunt, their prey is whatever they happen to capture in their lens. During our first ever trip to Montréal, my friends and I "hunted" for all the great things the city had to offer us. 

Full of art & innovation, Montréal proved to be a huge city with so much to see. With only three days to truly explore we were able to capture the essence of the city with the help of Car2go and their Mercedes Benz CLA 250. That car truly became the newest member of our wolf pack, navigating us throughout the city. Check out the "prey" I was fortunate to sneak back across the border below. 

Thank you Car2go for making this trip a very memorable one. 

 
 
 

Missed Youth


The transition from adolescence to adulthood is a journey with some of life's toughest questions. Who are you destined to be? What will your future hold? Why are other's expectations of you perceived as more important than your own? Facing the known and unknowns can be scary in its own right but imagine the battle between these personal fears being advertised at such a crucial point in life.

"Missed Youth" is an attempt to find what's missing while holding on to what hasn't yet been lost.

Home, Again.


We weren't built from sympathy. That's a concept we've known at a young age, it's something you had four years to reflect on. At seventeen you were arrested on charges I won't speak on. If respect and pride were things you could physically hold and possess your situation wouldn't have led to what it did. Twenty plus Securus calls, a couple letters, and one visit later your release date finally came. Outside the barb wired facility your mother and I patiently awaited. There was a big snow storm the night before so your arrival was delayed by a few hours. "This storm thought it could keep my baby from getting home!" your mother joked as a white van pulled up near where we parked. You hopped out of the back of that van as if your landing would be on top of a red carpet. The moment your mother embraced you in her arms I swear the sun shined brighter and it continued to as we made our way to our grandmother's house. We spoke of future plans and caught up on what the rest of the world was up too while you were gone. One thing you said that I'll never forget is "what's understood doesn't need to be said", I repeated your statement in agreeance. Throughout the rest of the day those words began to ring truer and truer. A visit to the mall would add proof to this as we entered an Eblens to get you some clothes since you only had the sweatsuit you were released in to wear. At the check out counter the man that was working there knew of your situation as soon as he looked at you. "I was once in your shoes" the man proclaimed but he didn't delve deeper into a conversation about his time away or even ask you about your up north trip. Acknowledgement was made, he continued with the transaction and then we left.

"What's understood doesn't need to be said" - My Cousin, Vic

In a way the big snow storm and it's aftermath was symbolic of your journey into adulthood. Although the storm has passed you still have to be prepared for the cold days ahead of you. Use precaution with every move you make, similar to walking on black ice. You and I both understand that when we slip up, empathy may be the last thing to show and especially the the last thing to help us back up.
